ESG - Shareholder engagement and impact investment
Shareholder engagement is an established effective strategy to improve the environmental, social and governance (ESG) disclosure practices of a company or industry.
- What precisely is this approach?
- How does the implementation vary according to investors and their different strategies?
- For which players is shareholder engagement most relevant and profitable?
- How do you measure the success of a shareholder engagement initiative?
Beyond the commitment and strategies traditionally associated with responsible investment, a new approach is emerging: impact investment. Our two speakers will discuss the fundamental principles of these two approaches, from the strategies deployed in shareholder engagement to the concept of intentionality, specific to impact investment.
